APC Members Will Not Join Atiku In PDP, Says Lawmaker

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has welcomed the return of the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, to its fold on Sunday while calling on other aggrieved members in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and other parties to follow suit.

Speaking through his media aide, Uche Anichukwu, the Deputy Senate President seized the opportunity to urge former PDP members who defected to the APC to return.

In a statement by the National Publicity Secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, the party said Atiku's return is an indication that he has realized the lies and deceit of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

"I am glad to announce my return to PDP", Abubakar announced in a live Facebook broadcast on Sunday, saying all the issues that had warranted his initial defection from the opposition party had now been resolved. "No amount of desperation will stop the will of God for Nigeria in 2019", said Ekweremadu.

"Whatever was promised has not been delivered", he said, adding that young citizens were disgruntled with the current administration.

The APC chieftain stated that the display of arrogance by some party leaders like governor Nasir El-rufai of Kaduna state, thinking that some people are not important will further bring misfortune to APC. "The President also knows that the ban on politics has not been lifted; so, he is not going to come out to wallow in the mud of 'he said, she said", Onochie said.

"Alhaji Atiku is known to hobnob from one party to the other when he can not have the control of the party".

Atiku was the vice to former President Olusegun Obasanjo from 1999 to 2007 after Nigeria returned to democracy.

"We will continue to remain transparent and dedicated to the service of this party".
